Isn't it funny when the kids say they're bored? Imagine if they were in lockdown during the nineties! 

This has made us experience a wave of nostalgia as we think about what on earth we did before the revolution that was the digital age. 

Growing up as a 90s kid was a world away from growing up in the noughties – for one thing we didn’t have the internet (gasp!) and our version of Netflix entailed physically driving to a mystical dwelling known as a “Video Shop”. Parents could pay for things using paper money (aka “a cheque”), mobile phones were reserved for the rich and famous, and you were considered the height of fashionable if you owned a Snap Bangle.

If you too grew up in Australia in the 90s, join us as we celebrate these unusual realities.

everyone between 2000 and 2010, experiences most of this stuff. Things like video and movie streaming are all relatively new, everyone born in the 90s acting like they had everything hard. CHANGE IS NORMAL, CHANGE IS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN. How do you think the 80s babies think.
